Keep in mind that, as you continue to learn and improve, your understanding of all the material in this volume will change. What seems complicated at first gradually becomes easier and clearer. What seems "far-out" gradually becomes "nothing special". What you acquire as "skillful means" gradually becomes like "legs on a snake". Eventually (and to whatever extent you are capable of it), you become free of all this "material". You see that the problems that you have in music (and on the guitar) are clearly reflected in the problems that you have in life (and as a person).
It all becomes the same thing, You Play, You Live, You Eenter:
The Pathless Land, Leaving no traces, no footprints.
For Long Years a bird in cage, today, flying along with the clouds.
Finally, and at long last, I have nothing more to say about this subject, whatever it was...
